Internet Inspiration – October 30, 2016

This has been my go-to recipe that month. It’s just the following dressing you could probably pour over a car bicycle to allow it to taste good.
Jodi of Legal Nomads is obviously an extraordinary writer, and she wrote magnificently about living with chronic, invisible pain.
I Truly love this May ’t Help Falling Over the Rainbow mash-up from Kenny Holland and his sister Capri.

She was mad because she was a girl, a woman who was not supposed to sleep or maintain her own walk home alone through the night.

Inside her very long, thoughtful piece of her daughter Carmen’s MS journey, Maria Bustillos interviewed a doctor named George Jelinek.

Her rage is what shines most obviously in her last poems — her huge, flawless, unfeminine anger. As her marriage shuddered and jolted towards its end, she needed to reevaluate who she was not the adoring wife, the sweet girl, the earth mother.

After so long, searching for a response to’fix’ the pain wasn’t helping.   I only turned toward healing after I forced that deep, destructive nostalgia from my mind.
